Description:

In the last few years Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)
have emerged as a transforming element in language teaching and learning
and have become an integral part of many courses of English for
professional and academic purposes (ESP). This collection brings together
contributions from ESP teachers, who provide an account of educational
experiences involving ICTs and share their practices, successes, failures
and reflections. Most papers in the volume report on blended learning
experiences, where teachers use either Course Management Systems like WebCT
or Moodle, or online learning environments created by themselves.
The contributions give ideas on how to develop pedagogically sound online
language learning materials. Additionally, they discuss issues related to
online language pedagogy and promote the development of online learning.
